Lobster Roll Favorite - Lobster Smack

In the past few years, lobster rolls have begun to show up with greater frequency here in the NYC area. Most are just mediocre in my opinion, and most too small a portion for the 18 dollar and up price the vendors are charging. Well, here on Houston Street, i've been testing out a location that has enticed me into showing up five times over the last two months. Lobster Smack is a brightly lit and clean, sparsely furnished location that delivers to my mind, the best Lobster value in the city.

Lobster Smack is located at 90 West Houston Street. From other reviews i've read online, it appears that they may have had some initial problems at start up, but fortunately i've been going there since all the problems have been ironed out. The lobster is truly fresh and wonderful here. I'm a big fan of the old bay seasoning. They offer a variety of seasonings which I haven't tried yet. The lobster roll is tasty, a good sized portion and almost HALF the price of other locations in the city. Wow. I wonder how they do that, and in addition to rolls, they make lobster quesadillas, soups and mac and cheese with lobster, and a few other variations on a theme.

I am very much a fan of their lobster bisque. I think it's delicious. While I personally haven't gotten beyond lobster rolls, my son has tried the quesadilla and the lobster mac, and he's quite enthusiastic about Lobster Smack, as well. So, if you've got a hankering for a fresh tasting lobster roll, I think you owe it to yourself to try out Lobster Smack.
